Re: F1.2 pro glass

I’m not sure I agree that the differences in dof are slight.

It does depend on your particular use case, but for me doing street photography of small groups of people around 12-15’ away, 17mm at f1.2 gives around 18” dof, while f1.8 is around 5’. In terms of subject isolation that’s usually closer to ‘major’ than ‘slight’ in my view.
